.com. acting irs commissioner reported to congress on the targeting of conservative groups. it follows a review of how applications for tax-exempt status were handled. this hearing is three hours. [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> the committee will come to order. good morning. it's been six weeks since the irs first revealed they were purposely targeting conservative leaning organizations, and this week additional irs documents revealed that the term "progressive" along with others were also included on the be on the lookout list, or the bolo. no taxpayer, regardless of political affiliation, should be unfairly targeted. it's wrong and this committee is working to ensure it will never happen again. the committees welcomed all groups to come forward and i urge them to do so. so far the evidence only shows conservatives being systematically targeted by the irs. not just flagged through the bolo but actually targeted. these americans consistently had their applications tee laid for nearly three years or asked intrusive and inappropriates questions, h
by a different group or a specialist in the irs. the failure of the ig of dayton to acknowledge the fact is a fundamental flaw in the investigation and the public perception of this issue. i wrote and asked him to explain these omissions. all committee democrats have asked you, mr. chairman, today that you ask him to return to the committee to provide the appropriate context for his report and ask the questions under oath regarding all these matters. it has an obligation to fully understand the manner in which they conducted his audit. a deeply troubling is that when asked about the new information has come to light, the treasury office initially said in the media reports, and i quote, that the audit report answered questions it was asked to address and the house oversight committee chairman darrell issa had requested that investigators merely focus on the key party organizations. we asked him tigta about this in the letter and he responded, quote, many of the press reports are not accurate. if these are some of the reports are accurate, tigta's initial explanation of the scope of the au
and 2004 when they were being investigated by the irs so yes i agree that there is cultural intimidation going on but it's not by the white house. it's by the my republican colleagues. that is why we demand the ig summoned back to his committee to answer questions once again under oath. we also demand the republican culture of intimidation stop so progressive groups will feel comfortable testifying before us here. the chairman's continued silence or excusing of the abuse of the groups makes it harder for these groups to come before us. we need to be a committee of facts and not a witchhunt. if we plan to get to the bottom of the investigation and hopefully, hopefully be able to tackle other legislative issues that we have coming before this committee of great importance to the country. so i demand that this republican culture of intimidation against progressive groups be stopped and that they be as outraged as we were outraged, democrats were outraged and we expressed our outrage when groups if we don't agree with politically or ideologically are being attacked or being inti

and who is spending and who is wasting us. that is us. so imagine myself when i discovered the irs is copying us in reverse. what we are practicing what we are preaching the taxman is preaching but he is not practicing. that is not there. that is not balanced and i'm not a lawyer but i think that is illegal. welcome everybody, i'm neil cavuto. and imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery but unless irs open up bake shops of my name they are selling them in cheap ways. irs was going after conservative groups and liberal groups, too. never mind that doesn't make him any less than a big bully. how many liberals, let's say not many. according to the agency's watchdog only a handful of groups were targeted by the irs compared to hundreds of conservative ones. only those that had words like occupy were reportedly even keystone in their name that could lead a non-lawyer, that would be me, there might have been an agenda to all of this. to target those who might be unfriendly to the administration, but again enough of that. i want to think about this. media that blocks the irs story
the federal government to places like the fdc, the fcc, the hhs, and as all americans know, even to the irs. these assaults have often been aided and abetted by allies in congress. as for the irs, i have got a phone call from a constituent laster who said he'd been subjected to extensive questioning and unreasonable deadlines from the irs. when similar complaints followed, i sent a letter to commissioner shulman asking for assurances that there was not --y little targeting going on. any political targeting going on. public office in the irs depended on it. six weeks later i got a response from stephen miller in which he said to move along, nothing to see here. well, we know that was not the case. we now know the irs was actually engaged in the targeted applications of conservatives and others who were criticizing how the government was being run. you get audited for criticizing the government is being run? overwhelm him with questions and paperwork and in some case initiate audits. in one case in irs agent demanded that the board members of the iowa pro-life group signed a declaration that

big fire bomb of misinformation. it's about the irs problem. mitch mcconnell who said his heart publicly to limiting president obama to a single term is declaring that he -- well, he's declaring there was a coordinated campaign out there, out at the white house, to use the leather raj of the government to target conservatives and stifle speech. this language which sounds like a rico prosecution is based on nothing. there's no evidence of any white house involvement with the actions of the irs. if he was, don't you think, mr. mcconnell, the white house would be dancing in the moonlight? don't you? >> if there was, loose talk was involved, do you really believe the head of the republican party and the senate wouldn't be using it to nail the president into a political coffin right now? give me break. this is a cheap charge, the kind a politician makes when he has no political am moe and the only thing he has to throw on his side is his shoe. thank you for joining us tonight. let's take a look at this right now. mcconnell spoke to conservatives today at the american enterprise insti
. it was like sending a memo to the irs that said audit these guys. all of these things together point to a coordinated effort to stifle speech, and that is why one of the most enduring lessons in the irs scandal comes from the timeline. we now know a team of irs specialist was tasked with isolate and conservatives for scrutiny as early as march of 2010. what happened before this party began is just as important as what happened after the targeting began. what matters is the atmosphere, what matters is the culture of intimidation, the culture of intimidation this resident and his allies created around any person or group that spoke up for conservatism or against the direction the president wanted to take us. the so-called special interest, he said special interest would flood the political process with money that would be coming from foreign entities. the problem he said his nobody knows who is behind these groups. they were shadowy, they might even be foreign controlled. these were the kind of unsubstantiated claims the president and his allied claim from early 2010 right up and threw
